Flared jeans are a true classic, and now with the return of the seventies trend, every brand from Zara to American Eagle is stocking them like school supplies. Worn by Jane Birkin (to the beach!) and Farrah Fawcett (on a skateboard), it seemed like the perfect pair to rock for classic face Addie Manzano. "People tell me I look like Katarina Rodriguez," says the rising model and former high school soccer player.
1. A Pique Shirt

Instead of doing a full-on ‘70s look with a printed button down, sport your jeans with a buttoned up pique shirt and platform sandals for a still classic yet more contemporary take.
2. A Knit Top

Peasant tops may be a little too literal. Instead, go for a knit top (still very now). Team it with platform espadrilles, and a straw visor for the confusing in-between seasons we are currently in.
3. A Bucket Hat

From that time she became a part of our list of Uber Stylish Ateneans and walked the Bench runway, we just couldn’t stop talking about long-legged Addie. This laid-back lady with an equally cool and casual sensibility, has naturally mastered the art of looking good—it runs in her blood.
4. A Bodysuit

Denim flares are seriously flattering. They make legs look longer and waists appear slimmer—no matter what your height and shape. It’s floor-grazing so it can take lengthening to exponential heights with hidden heels, but can also look equally good with sandals. For a change, top it off with a curve hugging bodysuit for a chic and chill vibe.
5. A Denim Vest

You see it on the legs of editors, bloggers, and old photos of your mom, maybe it’s time to give it a shot, too! Sport a denim-on-denim look with your favorite vest that will allow you to freely move around, in style.
6. A T-shirt

Grab a shirt, tuck it in your jeans, and get your Jane Birkin on. Bare feet and all.
